Sun Bandit Turns One!

On July Fourth, the anniversary of our nation’s independence, Sun Bandit celebrated its one-year anniversary. Sun Bandit allows customers and homeowners to achieve energy independence by harnessing the free power of the sun in a way that has never been done before.

This revolutionary Sun Bandit Solar Hybrid Water Heating System utilizes PV technology to deliver clean, reliable hot water while electric, natural gas or propane serve as a back up. Sun Bandit’s patent pending technology eliminates the need for complex solar mechanical water heating and replaces it with a clean, simple to install and easy to enjoy PV system that effectively and efficiently provides hot water while reducing fossil fuel consumption. 

Since its release last July, Sun Bandit has been heating up the solar hot water industry. By using photovoltaic panels rather than a traditional solar thermal collector, Sun Bandit is in a solar hot water category of its own. In fact, the Solar Rating and Certification Corporation is currently reviewing and proposing an update to their standards to include this new breed of hot water heating.

But third-party organizations aren’t the only ones taking notice. Distributors, installers and homeowners are raving about this revolutionary technology. Ian Huddleston of Firewater Solutions, LLC was able to easily and efficiently meet the needs of his off-grid customer with the help of Sun Bandit. He was also impressed by the ease of installation and the simple, all-in-one Sun Bandit kit. 

Another solar industry professional, Chris Verner of Accelerate Solar, was so impressed by the efficiency and cost-savings of Sun Bandit that he will no longer be offering traditional solar thermal for domestic hot water heating.

In just over 365 days, Sun Bandit is changing the solar hot water heating industry one installation at a time.
